RITCHIE, G. S. Persian Gulf Pilot. Comprising the Persian Gulf and its Approaches from Ra's al Hadd, in the South-West to Ras Muari in the East. Eleventh Edition. [London], Published by the Hydrographer of the Navy, 1967.
8vo. Original blue cloth; pp. [4, on pink paper], x, 372, , tinted folding map, many views of coastlines based on the drawings done for the 1914 edition; a fine copy.
This pilot guide had appeared first in 1870, and this is the last edition in this format, as the coastlines and coastal towns started to change beyond recognition. Apart from the obviously necessary information for navigating the Gulf the volume contains sections on trade, population, politics, languages, natural resources, and fisheries, including pearl fishing.
